When the air is clear and you look across the ocean to the mainland, the eleven miles doesn’t seem like a great span, but the gulf that separates Monhegan Island from the rest of the world is immense. The uniqueness of Monhegan is like a flower growing in a crack in a Manhattan sidewalk and, like that flower, it may go unnoticed by many. However, artists see with more than their eyes; that is why over the years so many are drawn to this tiny rock to be reborn in it’s natural rustic beauty.
This view is from Horn Hill on an Autumn evening when the last of the summer was about to leave. The island settles in for the night and six months of dreams.
Reproduced from and oil painting on hardboard by Giclee printing.
